These 10 Bags Will Carry You Stylishly from Summer Through Fall

A transitional bag has never let me down. 

One minute it’s hovering in the 90s and the next not even your wooliest cardigan can keep you warm. Welcome to summ-tumn … fall-mmer? OK, yeah, clearly there’s good hybrid name for those few weeks that straddle the seasons, but there is an excellent solution to dressing for its climatic uncertainty. And it’s called a handbag.

A transitional bag has never let me down. I’ve never been halfway to work on a mid-September morning and thought, Ugh, why did I take *this* bag? — It’s all wrong for the weather, as I swab sweat from my brow or shiver quietly while waiting for the bus.

And the 10 handbags ahead prove just how easy it is to anchor your transitional look with the accessory. Envision, for example, that elegantly quilted Rebecca Minkoff crossbody as the focus of your favorite layered look. Or imagine how Everlane’s black-and-white colorblock tote will look just as gorgeous with your new fall trench as with the summery dress you need to pull back out when the inevitable freak heat-wave hits a month from now. Lesson learned.
